About Our Workmanship:
Our trunks are carefully restored and refinished with only high quality materials and finishes. Unless otherwise noted: All handles are replaced with original style, heavy, dyed leather handles (most are multi-layered stitched). All brass is carefully cleaned and coated with clear lacquer to prevent tarnish. Other metal is cleaned and repainted or coated to prevent rust. Wood is sanded when necessary for a smooth finish and has several coats of finish, ending with a hand-rubbed durable satin gloss tung oil finish (the finish preferred by professionals for fine antiques). Trunks are cleaned out and relined with attractive, quality fabric, ready to use anywhere in your home. This fabric lining holds up very well and will look great indefinitely. I have trunks that were lined almost 30 years ago and they still look great. If reproduction parts are used on a trunk, it will be noted. Keys are not included unless noted. Many hours of work go into every restoration job and to maintain the historical authenticity of each trunk to the extent possible.
Note: Since these trunks are very old and have seen much use, there are certainly the expected signs of age, but none that detract from their usefulness or beauty. We are very picky about the condition of trunks we purchase to bring you only the best! If interested additional pictures can be emailed to you upon request. Please email if you have any questions on any item. Antique trunks, original trunk locks, and other antique items are listed below.
